The Department of Social Work Education
The Department of Social Work Education (DSWE) at Fresno State is committed to the education of social workers at the bachelor's and master's levels who will provide social welfare services and leadership in the central San Joaquin Valley and beyond. The Department is committed to enhancing both the quality of life in the region and the capacity of citizens to identify and address their own social welfare needs and social justice concerns.Graduates of both programs intervene with individuals, families, groups, and other small systems as well as with human service agencies, voluntary organizations, neighborhoods, and communities.
What We Offer Our Students
The Department of Social Work Education offers two degree programs to educate beginning and advanced social work practitioners. The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree program prepares students for beginning generalist social work practice as well as for graduate study in the human service field, including social work. The Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) prepares the learner for advanced multi-systems of social work practice as well as for doctoral study in social work and related human service arenas.
